Let’s shed some light on this

Do you remember the random “things I’m lusting after” post back in February?  I had the Valentines’ Day soundtrack, the Pier One lamps, and the Yankee Candle in my sights?

Well, I’m making progress on turning my “want” into “have.”

The Pier One lamps I was envisioning for the sideboard in our dining room went not just on sale but on clearance.  Whoo-hoo!

Don’t they compliment the chandelier shades well?  Honestly, it turned out even better than I’d anticipated.  I love having the warm glow coming from the back of the room in the evening hours; the dining room has become my favorite new place to just sit and think and chat with Jim and blog.

Have you come across any great finds for your home recently that just make a room come alive?

Love it! Everything came together quite nicely! What is the "dinning room" you speak of? Is that something normal houses have? ;)

Love your new lamps. They look wonderful on the sideboard and really do enhance the look of the chandelier. Such a pretty room. My new garage sale lamp and GW shade has really made one table in the LR. Love it when you find just the right thing. Hugs, Marty

Looks great!

I haven't done anything new around our place, just a little rearranging. I think I'm going to reference your old post about window mistreatments, though! My windows are naked!

So pretty!
I'm not even going to think about how you could have taken that last photo...please don't tell me you stood on a chair!! (Don't ask me why that was the first thing I thought of after "pretty"!)

I'm not the creative, decorating type, so I don't have anything to offer. But your lamps look awesome!
